legal resources necessary to hold negligent facilities accountable.
ManorCare Health Services Nursing Center
Many of the problems associated with mistreatment occurring in assisted-living facilities in nursing homes are the result of a lack of trained personnel, minimal supervision, or understaffing. In these incidents, the needs of the residents are often ignored; they suffer serious injuries from a fall or develop life-threatening bedsores. Other residents wander away from the facility due to a lack of supervision.

- Failure to Ensure Services Provided by the Nursing Facility Met Professional Standards of Quality – citation #F658 date September 27, 2018
- Failure to Provide Appropriate Pressure Ulcer Care Prevent New Ulcers from Developing – citation #F686 date January 30, 2018
The state investigators determined that the nursing home failed to ensure one resident observed for medication given via a gastronomy tube “was done according to professional standards. This failure resulted in a clogged tube and [the resident] needing to be sent to the hospital for the insertion of a new G-tube. This delay caused [the resident] to receive her medications and supplemental nutrition late.”
The facility “failed to provide the standard of care to prevent the development or worsening of pressure ulcers for [two residents]. This [failure] has the potential to cause serious medical concerns.”
A resident’s daughter said that her father “had not received heel protector boots that the Physician had ordered for her father until a week after they had been ordered.” During that time, the father “developed pressure ulcers on both of his heels. [The resident’s] daughter said [that on Thanksgiving Day] [the nurse] told her the dressings on her father’s heels had not been changed for three days. She said she remained concerned throughout her father’s admission that he was not receiving wound care as it had been prescribed by the Physician.”
The investigators reviewed the resident’s medical records and pressure ulcer assessment. The records indicated that there was the “presence of a Stage II pressure ulcer to the coccyx. There was no documented evidence of any other impaired skin integrity” or mention of the developing pressure wounds on the resident’s heels.
